In other celebrity news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on how Kris Jenner blames the rise of social media for making her reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, irrelevant.
Kris Jenner said in an interview recently that she thinks Keeping Up With the Kardashians has reached its end point because of social media. The matriarch pointed out that when she and her famous family began the show that there were no social media platforms of any kind.
Kris said that fans of the show and its family members have grown with the times. She said that audiences would prefer to get the updates they want directly and instantly from the Kardashian sisters themselves rather than wait for a season to be filmed and then watch it a few months later.
The notoriously business-minded Kris also added that all her girls have businesses where social media aids their goals. The individuals all have brands and lines that rely on connecting with customers and the likes of Instagram and Snapchat help them do that.
With her daughters being some of the most-followed people in the world, Kris does have a point. At last count, the millions of followers of each of the Kardashian-Jenner clan were: Kylie Jenner at 198, Kim K at 190, Kendall at 140, Khloe at 122, and Kourtney at 102. Clearly, the information that fans want is readily available on the social platforms as well as being free.
